Spook Series 2013: A Master List

Image

See that picture above? THAT’S HOW MANY MOVIES I WATCHED LAST MONTH.

…No. That’s a lie. But I did watch a lot of freaking horror movies for Spook Series–79 of them, if I did my math correctly. But I was looking at my lists a while back and I thought it would be cool to do something I intended to do yesterday, but didn’t: create a master list. Like, I have all these different movies, but when it gets down to it, what are the ones you really need to watch?

Though it’s a day late and maybe a dollar short–wait, scratch the “dollar short” because I do this blog fo’ free–I’d like to shamelessly semi-recycle material by recommending 20 must-watch films from Spook Series. Because let’s be real, these films are worth a watch any time of the year. In simple, alphabetical order (I can’t rank them by preference–it’s like ranking my children), here are 20 of my personal favorites, each with a very to-the-point reason to watch.

#1: Alien

Because SIGOURNEY WEAVER IS DA BEST.

#2: Coraline

Because it’s SO PRETTEH and CREATIVE.

So there you are! A little something I wanted to do while I’m pulling together NOOOOvember, which will be coming your way VERY soon (and if it interests you, you can still contribute, by the way). It was hard to pull together my favorite 20–and it still kind of hurts when I think about the many wonderful films I left out–but if nothing else you should definitely watch the above horrors before next Halloween. 🙂

  1. LOL I loved your motivations here. All of them. I freaking LOVE Cillian Murphy. That guy is awesome. And Zombieland? It’s ALL about Tallahassee!

    • Bahaha! I remember wanting to make it as simple as possible, so I was like, “This’ll work!” And RIGHT? Cillian Murphy is awesome! I feel like I’ve barely seen him in anything lately, and I miss him! And Woody Harrelson was freaking BORN to play Tallahassee. He’s amazing.
